Even small amounts of alcohol, especially in small dogs and cats, can cause life-threatening toxicity.
I have to say this article was horribly written. Why? Because of the obvious, negative bias against pit bulls. Pit bulls are not inherently vicious, nor aggressive, and as the owner of a former fighting pit bull I can safely say that although they are powerful dogs, they can be just as gentle. My pit not only loves and respects my cat (less than 5 lbs. and declawed), he also respects the cats in the neighborhood who sometimes like to rub against him when we’re out on the porch. It all comes down to how they were raise and trained. The article means well, and yes, one need take caution with certain breeds like terriers and sight hounds that were bred to chase and kill small game, but there are no “breeds” that are better with cats than others and it truly depends on the dog’s drive, temperament, and how it was raise. These articles are very misleading to the average owner searching for a good companion as most dogs in general can learn to live peacefully with cats and non-canine pets if raise with them from a young age and monitored when playing together. So this article is nothing more than someone’s opinion (which reeks heavily of media bias, and negative stereotypes) on which breeds they would choose to own with a cat.
